This in 2011?
18 August 2012 | by pietro-garofaloSee all my reviews

This movie explicitly alarmed me for the wrong attempt in introducing technology and robots in a hypothetic future where big bosses control the globe.

The idea and plot is definitely nice.

At the beginning, I was thinking that the idea of showing the facts of the disaster like it would be sitting at home in front of TV was original, because (you must admit it), that is how you would leave a disaster that is far from your house.

However, the overall result is absolutely below the expectations and it makes me thinking that there is nobody controlling the quality of a movie before it is actually released.

More than that, I am very surprised actors in such a movie would be satisfied about themselves, about the words they were asked to say, and dialogs in general.

I understand there could be also budget reasons, but I saw many movies where the budget limitations do not prevent the movie to have a good soundtrack, music and dialogs.

Finally, for who thinks that famous actors make a movie successful, it is not true. With such dialogs and direction, even Bruce Willis would have appeared as inadequate in such movie.

Our children in the future will probably see a robot in every movie, but it will not be a robot to make a nice movie.
